HASH(0xa77d67d4) out of 5 stars A road map for hands-on software learning Jan. 18 2012
By TTP3317 - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I went to a local BN bookstore and compared five books and chose this one. Got it from Amazon for $10 less.

This is by no means an "Inside-Out" type of software manual. It is, rather, sort of a manual in short hand. It is task oriented and loaded with screen shots. Each instruction from the author has a number with a corresponding number marked on a screen shot. So if you want to learn how to crop an image, for example, you can go to the index and look up "crop", and then go to the pages (104-105). You'll find four steps to crop your image with screen shots of the program buttons to click (numbered 1-4) as well as an example of a photo being cropped. To me, this is much quicker to learn than reading a statement such as "Locate the Crop Tool on the Editor Tool Selection Panel (see chaper 2 on Editing Tools) and select the tool by clicking on its icon."

If you believe the best way to learn a new computer skill is to get your hands on the mouse and keyboard then I think this book can speed up your learning curve. You can use this book to become familiar with the progam, its logical design and organization, and the right buttons to push for a particular task. There are 17 chapters so it is not without details, it just has a lot more screen shots and a lot fewer words than most software manuals. Dyslexic folk like me appreciate that.

Beautiful - full color - easy to read and understand. A+ Now maybe I can actually use the program! The 'Teach Yourself VISUALLY' is the easiest series to learn from.

HASH(0xa7943a44) out of 5 stars Teach Yourself Visually - Photoshop Elements 10 from Amazon Jan. 14 2012
By Jack R. Sorwick - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This is a really good instruction manual. It covers anything that I could think of doing with Elements 10, and is a great learning tool and reference manual, all in one volume. The only thing that I would add to it would be a section, perhaps at the beginning of the book, for impatient types like me who want to get going right away just to see how Elements 10 works. By just jumping into "Edit", then selecting "Guided", one can learn quite a bit about how the program works. I did that, then read the book cover-to-cover. Really happy with the book.

HASH(0xa7943a14) out of 5 stars Great book for beginners March 2 2012
By Rebecca M. - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I am new to Elements and got frustrated trying to use the online tutorials. I tried another book before this one, but it used too much technical language for me. This book is easy to read and understand. Very good for beginners like myself who want to read instructions and put it to use at the same time; you can just read the section you need for what you want to do at that time, no need to read the entire book at once for it to be helpful. I have had Elements for a few months, but now I can actually use it with this book.

HASH(0xa794ae58) out of 5 stars Teach Yourself Visually Photoshop Elements 10 Feb. 29 2012
By Brenda - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This is a great instructional book on using Photoshop Elements 10 functions. It is easy to follow--each function/task is described with step-by-step instructions along with corresponding screen shots showing the tool location. Additionally, it provides extra tips for the specific tasks. Although written for Microsoft users, it also provides the correlating step for Mac users. Though I am quite familiar with computer usage, I had never used Photoshop software. I purchased Photoshop Elements 10 before the Christmas holidays to make some unique collage picture posters for my grandson of his fall soccer. I had to jump between the PSE 10 tutorials and their online help desk anytime an issue came up. I wish I had purchased this book at the same time; it would have same me a lot of time. I can't imagine anyone finding this book difficult to follow if they are at all familiar with computers.
